The trio of new Beneteau Flyers was launched at the end of 2013 – just the latest edition of one of Beneteau's longest serving powerboat marques.

On display to the public at the Paris Boat Show, reviewer Alex Smith enjoyed a quick introduction with all three. See for yourself on the video link below:


Beneteau Flyer 6

In honour of the Flyer's 30th anniversary, a new Flyer 6 range has been launched.

Perhaps the most suitable of the three models for use in the UK is,

Alex concludes, the Beneteau Flyer 6 'Space deck' layout. With a rear seat that folds out into a sun bed and the rest of the foredeck and cockpit left open, it's perfect for a day's fishing.

The hull is designed to maximise grip and stability, and is rated up to 200hp – so 40 knots should be achievable no matter which configuration is chosen.

The sportdeck configuration takes the same hull and turns it into a bowrider, while the sundeck has a foredeck sun lounger, variable seat configurations in the rear and an optional marine toilet down below.

The Flyer celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, so why not take a look at all the past editions listed on Search all Beneteau Flyer for sale in UK.
